Four officials held over submarine affair released to house arrest

The Rishon Lezion Magistrate’s Court releases to house arrest some of the suspects recently detained in a spiraling corruption investigation regarding a multi-billion-dollar purchase of naval vessels from Germany.

Former minister Eliezer (Moodi) Sandberg, former commander of the navy’s elite Shayetet commando unit, Brigadier General (res.) Shay Brosh, and Rami Taib, a senior aide to Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz, were all released to house arrest.

However, Judge Einat Ron extended the arrest of strategic adviser Nati Mor, as requested by police, who argue that he tried in the past to obstruct the investigation.

The suspects were arrested earlier in the week.
